Hi! I'm new to the forums, and I guess I'll introduce myself. I'm really grateful that I found this group, I was feeling like a weirdo for being childless on these forums... like maybe I should photoshop a baby into my avatar or something.
-Where do you want to live/where do you live?
Portland, Oregon born and raised! I can't think of a reason ever to move, especially since my family is here.
-How many kiddos do you want, and does anyone plan to adopt?
I think I want two, but I honestly have no idea.
*Do you have any hobbies?*
I read, knit, spin wool, do yoga. I also spend a lot of time on the internet, unfortunately ;)
*What do you do as a job?
A little bit of everything for GladRags.com :)
*Any non-crunchy confessions?*
Clothes and beauty products are my weakness. I rarely buy new things, but when I do they often aren't eco-friendly.
1. Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
I have a cat named Carlos. He is the loudest, most talkative cat in the world. I also have a French Angora rabbit named The Bun, because I am soooo creative with names. My children will probably be named The First Baby and The Second Baby.
2. Do you have anything stashed away for your future kids? (oh-so-cute outfit you couldn't not buy? Special cradle that's been in the family forever?
Not really. I have some child development books from when I worked with kids, and from college. Mostly when I need to knit baby stuff I give it to friends who actually have babies!
3. Favorite food?
I haven't had breakfast yet so OH MY GOD EVERYTHING. Also coffee.
4. What brought you to MDC?
GladRags has advertised in Mothering for years, so we get a free copy of the magazine and I love it. I've always been interested in parenting and families (I was in the Child & Family Studies program in college) and look forward to having kids of my own... someday.
5. Random fact about yourself
When I was born I weighed over 11 pounds :) Needless to say, I was the last child in my family.
